are disabilities. this is targeting people who are what are called dual eligible eligible for both medicare or medical and medicare. what is long-term care integration? what does that phrase mean? it means the integration of primary and acute care services with long-term services and supports as well as institutional care. so we're talking about bringing the medical model together with the social services model, and they will both be provided by managed care health plans to this population, the dual eligibles, those who are eligible for med ical and medicare so an older population as well as a population with disabilities as well as populations who are older so it's a mix. this plan was prepared because california has instituted a coordinated care initiative. in january of 2012 governor jerry brown introduced the coordinated care initiative. its purpose across the state of california is to improve coordinate and coordination of service delivery for consumer satisfaction of the groups i mentioned and at the same time substantial savings so they want to shift where services are provided
because we are only 61 years old and not eligible for medicare for another four years. $18,000 a year for health care. we were told that part of the problem is the provisions in the law require us to choose a plan that has maternity benefits. how does this make sense for seniors to be forced to buy coverage that does not apply to them? we agree that benefits should not be denied to peernling peopt it's not fair to be forced to buy coverage that doesn't even apply." mrs. fischer: i rise to speak on behalf of nearly 3,000 nebraskans who have contacted my office with their concerns about obamacare. their stories are, unfortunately, not unique. skyrocketing premiums and cancellation of plans, that they were promised that they could keep. curt from lincoln, nebraska, wrote to tell me he has seen his bluecross blueshield premium rise a shocking 300%. david, a father living in omaha, is face ago potential total increase of $16,000 a year for his family's coverage. $16,000. another constituent from bertrand, nebraska, will see his family's deductible more than double next year. how is this th

, medicare part d being the most recent one. so from their perspective, yes, they at least bought themselves some time if didn't save it completely. i think we won't know the ultimate fate until we see how the website is working by the deadlines that they have promised later this month. >> in fact, josh, we heard from a number of democrats who have been critical of the rollout who were saying the president did buy himself some time. but is the fix going to be enough? are we going to see red state democrats like mary landrieu continue to offer legislation to do something else? do we know how many democrats will vote for the upton bill today? >> you would expect several dozen if not more house democrats to go with the republican plan that the white house said would gut the essential element of obama care. and what's really striking is that democratic leaders in both the house and the senate said that obama's speech and his press conference yesterday was enough to at least buy some time. if you're talking to not just senate democrats in red states but house democrats in blue districts and swing
a look at medicare. the largest single -- going to be the largest single social insurance program we have in our nation before this plan. the biggest change to that program ever actually happened 38 years after the program was introduced in 2003, when president obama introduced a drug benefit into the plan. but that took legislative approval. i don't see any way that we can fix this law, fix the things that are wrong with it, until congress finally gets away -- until the republicans get away from a position of just trying to defeat it to actually trying to fix it. >> jonathan gruber, economics proffer at m.i.t., former adviser to the white house, that was an intensely clarifying discussion for me tonight. thanks for being here. >>> lots to come tonight, including a crash course on how to be really, really bad at the job of former president of the united states. it's a job not that many people have it, but now we know what it looks like to stink at that job. stay with us. the secret is out. hydration is in.

he was referring to the vast majority of americans who either have medicare or medicaid or who get -- and most people who get their health insurance through their company. they keep their plans. but that distinction wasn't made. and the president gave an opening for the politics you're talking about. and the president has to realize and i think does now realize that the same sort of media dynamics that led to the argument for health care -- in other words, the vail of poor people who can't get coverage and are scammed in the system, the media lens can turn around and put the spotlight on people who are denied coverage. which is exactly what's happening now. and i think the president who is so good at the big picture, at framing the big picture, i think realizes that he needs to make that big argument again because it exposes the republicans' real game here. which is to repeal the law. that's their only game. and they say it openly. they say it absolutely openly. all the hours of talk you hear about what's wrong with the website, the republicans don't care what's wrong with the webs

a letter telling that she and her husband no longer could keep their medicare advantage plan. it was terminated. so they found another plan. much higher cost. much higher premium, much higher deductible. i'm a self-employed and purchase health care privately. i'm a single parent with a mortgage payment. and a child in high school. i was given estimate -- my plan was canceled and i was given an estimate for a replacement plan almost double of what i'm paying today. mr. president you have not kept your promises for seniors. so you not kept your promise to single working mothers you have not kept your promise to families. you have not kept your promise to the people that i represent. .. takeover will work if you can't keep your promises to the american people? a senator: mr. president? the presiding officer: the senator from north dakota. h.o.v. in north dakotamr. hoeven: in north dakota we've got a lot of farmers and ranchers. theythey run a small business and they're being hit very hard by obamacare, like other small businesses acr
is the three page letter that the cms, centers for medicare and medicaid services sent out today. on page three is a thinly described illegal bribe. it says though this transition policy was not anticipated by health insurers when setting rates, the risk corridor program should help unintended revenue. the risk corridor program is a program you can get on cms risk corridor program and drawdown this document and look at it yourself. but what it says is that for the transition from where we were to the affordable care act, the federal government can give money to insurance companies to help them adjust and stabilize some of their premium payments if they get too many sick and older. but it has to be for qualified health plans. on the third page, if scissot s recipients are qualified health plans. it talks about section 1342 and section 1343, both of which only apply to nongrand fathered individual and small group plans inside and outside the exchanges. qualified health plans that meet the new obama care standards. but what they're saying in this letter is we'll try to find a way to bribe the insu

and medicare defense. i want to make it clear that the steadiness of the share of the category maps different patterns among its components so that chart at the bottom of the page and this other category. owing to the expansion of insurance coverage through the affordable care act and rising health care costs per person. in contrast, nondefense discretionary spending in the budget control act. we show figures like these not to suggest that you should try to repeat the budget configurations of the past, but instead to help you and others understand which parts of the federal budget are expanding relative to the size of the economy and which ones are shrinking. there is no particular reason that outlays for social security and medicare need to be cut back to the historical average share of gdp when a larger share of the population is old enough to receive benefits from those programs. however, if the programs are not cut back, then we will need to collect a larger share of gdp in tax revenue relative to our history, or cutback in other federal an methods and servicese listed to what we have bee

for medicare and medicaid services, known as cms, the food and drug administration, the health resources and services administration. the indian health service. the national institutes of health and the substance abuse and mental health services administration. the vast majority of the it's resources are dedicated drerktly to the appropriations made to our prams and operating divisions and our gover nans structure reflects that reality. program level it decisions are governed and reviewed by our operating divisions. each of hhs's operating divisions has its own chief operating officer and an it management structure. and management of the development of healthcare.gov was comparable to management 06 similar it initiatives throughout the department's operating divisions. indeed, prior to it initiatives that we're all familiar with. including medicare care.gov led and developed by cms who serves as the business owner and developer of healthcare.gov for the federally facilitated marketplace. since i joined the department about 18 months ago, we have been working to restructure and update ou
the risk to personal medical information. let me be clear. the centers for medicare and medicaid services and its contractors failed to fully deliver what they were supposed to deliver. congressional oversight of those failures is absolutely warranted. but nobody in this room -- nobody in this country believes that republicans want to fix the website. for the past three years, the number one priority has been to bring down this law. and their goal, ladies and gentlemen, has not changed. today they complained their constituents are waiting too long on healthcare.gov to sign up for insurance. but is there a solution to fix the website? no. it's to repeal the affordable care act and eliminate health insurance for millions of americans by repealing the federal care act indeed would reduce waiting times on the website, it would increase waiting times in our nation's emergency rooms. mr. chairman over the past month instead of working in a bipartisan manner to improve the website, he politicized this issue by repeatedly making unfounded allegations. in my opinion, these statements have impaired
medicare and medicaid. and that accounts for the vast majority of americans. >> there you see the president explaining there further his comment that if you like your health care plan. he's only speaking to the employer market. he meant the medicare, medicaid, not the individual insurance market and so on. the question remains now about whether seeing millions of people kicked off of their plans as we saw in the individual insurance market now and sending them over to the government exchanges instead was actually their plan right from the beginning contrary to the president's explicit promises. dr. ezekiel emanuel admitted it to me. 7 million includes the people who were expected from the individual market to come on as well. so it's not just -- >> first are you admitting it was foreseen that the individual insurance market would collapse and that was a key facet of obama care working? >> it's not a matter of foreseeing. >> why didn't you plan against it? >> we were giving them a better method called the the exchange. >> there you have it. that's the question. was that the original goal aft
, the trustees have said medicare goes bankrupt in 2026. the disability fund you referenced, 2016. and is there a way for us to address our long-term fiscal outlook if we don't reform those programs or also are we able to even sustain them for the beneficials that rely on them? >> senator, your first question, our baseline projections follow current law in which the federal share of medicaid costs for the additional populations under the affordable care act declines from 90% over a few years later. our projections incorporate that and that feature current law. >> so just to be clear, if after three years the states come to us and say we want you to continue to pay 100%, that is not accounted for in this fiscal outlook? >> that's right. we would provide a cost estimate for that legislation. it would show additional cost for the federal government. >> with regard to obviously important programs, i think, to all of us but also a big challenge we face. >> yes. so on your second question, as my charts showed, the rise in spending for social security and medicare under current law relat
